The Shemagh or kafiya is a traditional Middle Eastern head wrap thought to
have been developed from the Arabic turban. Its primary purpose is to protect
the wearer's head, face, eyes, and neck from the elements, including the sun,
wind, dust, and sand. It can also be worn around the neck as a scarf, and
lately has become a popular fashion accessory.Adopted by the British Special
Air Service (SAS) personnel during World War II, the woven cotton scarves are
popular today with our war fighters in the Middle East and Afghanistan.All of
our shemaghs are 100% cotton and the colors are woven in as opposed to printed
on the surface as is the case with some cheaper (and inferior) products.
